Allegheny Wood Products is committed to being a good environmental steward in all company practices.

AWP promotes the principles of sustainable forest management including the practicing of sustainable forestry, forest regeneration, the long term maintenance of forest and soil productivity, protection of water resources, and the protection of special sites and biological diversity.

AWP foresters adhere to federal, state and local regulations regarding timber harvesting in order to design and implement the best practical harvest plans. State BMP’s (Best Management Practices) are followed and all loggers contracted by AWP meet state and local training and certification requirements.

All AWP sawmill and dry kiln facilities are managed to be in compliance with all local, state and federal regulations regarding air and water quality. Regular environmental audits are conducted at each facility to monitor the effectiveness of all environmental procedures.
